You say Murkwski, I say Murkowski...


Sen. Lisa Murkowski, whose write-in bid depends on Alaska voters remembering and reproducing her name on the ballot on Nov. 2nd, talked today about her first general-election campaign video which, awkwardly, misspelled her name.

In an interview on The Daily Rundown, Murkowski said the campaign video was produced by "volunteers." The original video, which spelled her campaign Web site, "LisaMurkwski.com," has since been pulled down. The director of Alaska's Division of Elections has said misspelled ballots may be counted if a voter's intent is clear.

Murkowski called her Democratic opponent, Sitka Mayor Scott McAdams, a "nice guy," who is "unelectable," and Joe Miller, the Republican who beat her in the Aug. 24th primary, "outside the mainstream."

She said that although she has stepped down from her Senate leadership position, she intends to caucus with Republicans if she's reelected.
